Hello!

(
  I just reported similar things for epics.anl.gov in

    https://epics.anl.gov/tech-talk/2019/msg01219.php
)

At the EPICS Base page

  https://epics-controls.org/resources-and-support/base/

I don't understand the naming.  It seems inconsistent to me.

In the Download section, why is the EPICS Base 7.0.2 release labeled
"EPICS 7.0.2" when the EPICS Base 3.15.6 release is labeled "Base
3.15.6"?  They should be consistent: e.g., "Base 7.0.2" and "Base
3.15.6" (or "Release 7.0.2" and "Release 3.15.6").

In the Versions section, I see "EPICS Release x": the versions are
labeled "EPICS", but in other places they're labeled "EPICS Base".
Which one is it?

And in the Development Statistics section, there's:

  * EPICS 7
  * Base-3.16
  * Base-3.15
  * Base-3.14
  * Base-3.13

I think consistent naming would help improve clarity.

Thanks!

Lewis
